HTC Rhyme Now Available From Verizon, Six-Armed Woman Included

The glowing charm phone aka the HTC Rhyme, is now available at Verizon for $199 on 2-year contract.  Clearly geared towards women, this phone comes with its own docking station, tangle-free earbuds, and snazzy charm notifier to let you know when you have an incoming call.  The specs won’t blow your mind, but they aren’t supposed to.  It’s all about style and function with this phone – a semi-bold new concept from any phone manufacturer.

Oh, and check out this new commercial that just went live.  It’s…well, I don’t want to spoil it and will just ask that you watch it yourselves.

Buy.

Cheers Cody!

    That has to be one of the most mesmerizing/hypnotic commercials that I
    have ever seen. The music and the great looking model (woman), awesome! I
    almost forgot what company and phone brand was being advertised. I don’t care
    if it’s a girl phone…great commercial.

  • Ulysses Rodriguez

    IDK if it was only me, but she reminded me of thaat creepy palm pre lady >.>

  • LionStone

    This phone is so pretty! My girl would destroy it though…Still glad I got her the D2G :-)

    You know, I really love that color but that’s about it. The charm indicator would be nice if it were bluetooth and you could attach it to something else. Now, if the Bionic came in that lovely shade of purple…

    The Palm advertising team has found work again!

  • dlabs

    This ad feels like Verizon copied the Animatrix with the Orcale explain a phone instead of the Matrix.

    I have to admit, that little charm notifier is a pretty cool idea, and not just for women either.  If they would make a bluetooth version that can be clipped on to something I could see a lot of people using that.

    Isn’t that the girl from those weird palm pre commercials?

  • http://twitter.com/pixelnate Nate Turnage

    She wants it strong enough for a man, but pH balanced for a woman. ;^)

    Holy crap! HTC and Verizon have resurrected Palm’s creepy lady ads!

  • BOMBO

    Its all fun and games with her until you piss her off. And we ALWAYS manage to piss em off. With her…you’re fucked. When dealing with a 6-armed, pissed off woman there is no way out. Im scared. The lady scares me and her weird lady-phone scares me too.

    This in no way reminds anyone of the creepy Palm Pre lady?

    That commercial makes me think this phone is armed and dangerous. Or is it charmed and dangerous?

  • tbaybe

    if it had better specs i would totally get one. I like the ideas they have incorporated.

    I don’t get why HTC thinks women need their own phone model.  If you want to have a phone in a feminine color, just change the casing on an existing phone and offer two models.  Or better yet, don’t… and increase your in-store selection of cases.

      I don’t get why it bothers you so much.

        It bothers me that they’re packaging a phone with slightly “lesser” specs in a pretty outside to entice women.  I’m a woman, and I want the same phone power as a man.  Isn’t that my right?  Lol…

          “Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman”

          still applies today!

          You are not the typical women crowd they are going for.  Whether you like it or not, nerdy technology is a market dominated by men. 

          You haven’t noticed how the Bionic commercials(and other similar ones) tend to feature hot women rather than hot men?  And use premises that women STEREOTYPICALLY dislike, such as sci-fi? 

          I understand that there are women who want a powerful phone and don’t need a ‘feminized’ phone, but please understand, you are not the majority.

            Oh ok.  Thanks for “clearing” that up for me.  (Gotta learn to keep my mouth shut when the menfolk are talkin’.)

            You can take it that way if you want.  You are not the typical woman, and you know it.  Though you are acting like the typical woman right now.

            Lol.  Fair enough.  I’ll think twice before trying to joke around with you (since obviously, my last post was meant as a humorous remark.)

    The phone is what it is, aimed at a certain demographic & they all can’t/shouldn’t be powerhouses…..with that being said, I LOVE THE STYLE OF THE DOCK, hope HTC keeps it up regarding OEM accessories 4 their products

    As long as she comes with the phone

  • Granted

    Is this phone geared towards worshipers of Shiva?!

    I actually think the phone is a sexy beast! With every single new phone coming out, looking almost exactly like the one before it, it’s nice to see one with some style! And alert charm is really cool.

        I like the idea of the charm if it’s detachable…could be handy in some situations.  I’m also a sucker for any neat technology.

        • Scott Willenborg

          …and instead of “charm” they call it something much more butch… like “Passive Electronic Notification Information System”.  For short you could call it a PENI… ah gawdamnit.

      Shiva is male… so I doubt it’s geared towards worshippers of Shiva.

    TThe background looks like a female body part that is very sensitive and has a significant cameo in the south park movie.

    What the heck is going on? Who is green lighting these commercials? 

  • Billy Jenkins

    Does the phone come with a 6 armed woman? if it does then I might be interested

  • Billy Jenkins

    All HTC phones should come with its own dock and ear phones straight out of the box. and for only $200 for all of it.

      and charm? lol

    the design of the phone is rather ugly for it to appeal to the female crowd

      Except you know every fairy loving weird cat lady who has an eris will love it. It’s like japanese girls charm phones.
